The Dares

Book is so full of ideas and inspiration. I've been working on some random layouts and this is Dare #3. What are you obssessed with? My addiction is Coca-Cola. I stopped drinking it excessively on December 27 when I started my life style change (aka diet). I have had it on several scrapbooking events within the last month but I'll let those slide...

I was also playing with my scanner which I have probably used it three times in five years that I've had this printer. Not bad but it only does 8 1/2 * 11. I really want a 12 *12 scanner. Can anyone recommend a good, inexpensive scanner please? I love the scan so much better than the photo, especially when I post layouts on the blog.

P.S. I have a typeo on the journaling but I forgot to correct it. I will, I promise. Oh, and please tell me what's missing. I feel it needs something else. Constructive criticism is always welcomed.

I can totally appreciate your addiction...from one addict to another. I have not had a life changing experience...so therefore, I shall continue to drink COCA-COLA with no regrets and no guilt. As a matter of fact, I'll have a cold cup in your honor...for making such a beautiful lo. I love that DARES book...I owe you a big one for telling Vane and my superstar for buying it for my birthday.
Hugs

Hi Ady -- love your new scrap space and your Coke layout!! I am back from my scrap weekend and will try to get some layouts posted later this week...

OK, on the subject of the 12x12 scanner, I bought a Mustek wide format scanner about a year ago (because it was the cheapest one out there) and I gave it away only 9 months later because it was a hunk of junk! I bought the Canon Canoscan 8800F and it rocks -- it is NOT a wide format scanner but the color quality and speed are both great. I stitch my layouts together using Jessica Sprague's method (she has a tutorial on the CK website) in Photoshop Elements 5.0. It seemed like it was going to take a lot of time, but once I got the hang of it, it was no big deal. Hope that helps!

Very cool page, Ady!
Love the new banner.

Cute layout! I switched to Coke Zero because it doesn't taste nasty like Diet Coke (actually tastes a lot like regular) and it's zero calories. Not that it matters at all because it's not like I've lost one pound since switching.

Hi Ady,
I am also doing the Dare book. I am very inspired to do it. I am doing "Favorites" and I will do "Guilty Pleasure" (AKA Matt Damon)after.
Anyway, my hubby's dare album will for sure have a Coke obsession page.
Did I tell you I am loving your room???
Hugs,
Dayami

Thanks for compliment!

You are always so sweet. I guess since you, Anilu, and Lou outnumber me, I will have to visit you all in Miami instead of you guys coming to Tampa.

Have a great day!
